Jennifer Garner Makes an Effort to Party Alone

Jennifer Garner appears on the September cover of Allure magazine, where she looks great and says normal things about herself. (She admits, "There were times I had to watch every calorie that went into my body ... Doing something like that again ... is not exactly on the top of my list.") She also offers good advice on marriage, explaining that she makes "a very conscious decision" to attend some parties and premieres without her husband, Oscar-winner Ben Affleck. "It can be too much," she says. "I think especially for women, they can really lose their identity and just become 'wife of.'" Okay, but admit it: Sometimes it's also just more fun to fly solo, without someone sweating all over you in red-carpet photos or hogging all the hors d'oeuvres.
